I agree with other reviewers except the comment, "Great clips of 1940's trains & trucks." They would be great clips since it was a 1937 film.

I like the train footage but really its a sort of cartoon plot. I guess its the 1930 version of a feel good movie. Very predictable.Some funny jokes here and there and the acting is pretty good. Light entertainment.

Now that we are having the battle for
KCsmartport & all these darned Corridors,
this movie is very timely.
My favorite scene is the letter--- Dear Sir
"I have managed to struggle along without the aid of some egotistical half baked nincompoop who thinks he can sit at a desk 2,000 miles away & tell me how to run my business"
We need more movies like this one & more people with spunk to write these type of scripts
This is the kind of picture that Nat Levine knew how to make from his earliest days at Mascot. Sol Siegel was now on board as line producer and Joe Kane was in the director's chair. It's a nice, tight, little railroaders against crooked truckers picture with a lot of action (particularly well photographed train and truck race)a little romance, a little comedy, and a very good cast. Grant Withers still in his leading man stage is very good. He would be a Republic Pictures staple for many years, as would Director Joe Kane. Dorothy Appleby has just the right amount of spunk and sexuality for her part, which she plays a little broad. Harry Davenport as Jed Carson, practically steals the picture as the "Grandfatherly" head of the railroad. The large cast of Republic Pictures regulars are all fine. An enjoyable little film.
